Sorry if this topic has been covered before or if I'm posting it in the wrong section. I'm new to the forum.

I am about to start General Physics 1 this summer (start date June 3rd) and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for additional textbooks to purchase that could really help with the material and in addition provide additonal problem sets. The text my class is going to be using GIANCOLI 6th edition. This is the non-calculus physics class (if that makes any sense). I also picked up a book called 3,000 solved problems in physics, but I want more books on the subject.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Physics by Cutnell & Johnson
College Physics by Serway et al.
College Physics by Knight et al.
Conceptual Physics by Hewitt

If you get really stuck on the concepts, the three books that got me through university physics:

Physics Demystified by Stan Gibilisco
The Cartoon Guide to Physics by Larry Gonick with Art Huffman
REA's Problem Solvers- Physics

I hope these prove of some use. Good luck!

Check betterworldbooks.com for inexpensive used copies and free shipping. I looked for two of those titles and found both there.

I teach a high school course from Hewitt with substantial success.
